Hollyoaks star Andy Moss has revealed that he was accidentally injured during a fight scene for E4 spin off Hollyoaks Later – leaving him ‘battered and bruised’.

His character, Rhys Ashworth, is beaten up by ‘Blue’ – a member of a drugs gang at a music festival – in the episode and Andy got hurt while filming what he describes as “the best fight scene I’ve ever done”.

The actor said: “Blue throws me out of shot. I smacked by head on a couch and was very woozy for a second. Then I finished my scene like a pro.

“Someone drove me home and made sure I was alright because I didn’t want to drive. There was a first aider there and stuff so it was all cool. It was inevitable that something like that will happen with a big fight.”

Andy said he was left “stiff, battered and bruised for a few days” by the fight but had told the other actor to really “go for it”.

Hollyoaks Later will be on E4 from today until Friday.
